DU Correspondent :
Bangladesh General Students Rights Protection Council on Wednesday gave a seven-day ultimatum to withdraw all four cases filed against them, otherwise they would boycott classes in colleges and universities across the country.
The ultimatum was announced at a press conference held in front of Dhaka University's central library.
While reading out a statement in this regard the joint convener of the platform Nurul Haq Nur demanded that the law enforcers or DU authorities file case against the real perpetrators after identifying them by scrutinising CCTV footage.  He alleged that the protestors and those who led the protest are getting threats very often and some people are spreading propaganda against them on different social media platforms including facebook.
 "We want security of those who played active role during the protest and immediate gazette of Prime Minister's declaration," said Nurul. Two other joint conveners Faruk Hasan and Muhammad Rashed Khan were also present at the press conference. On April 11, four cases were filed with Shahbagh Police Station against a huge number of unidentified people on charge of vandalism, arson and obstructing lawmen to perform their duty during demonstrations in Dhaka over quota reform in public service recruitment.
DU security officer Kamrul Ahsan filed one of the cases against some unknown persons for vandalising the residence of the university's Vice Chancellor Prof Mohammad Akhtaruzzaman, said the OC.
Humyan Kabir, inspector of Special Branch (SB) of Police in Dhaka filed another case accusing 30 to 40 unidentified people for torching his motorcycle and snatching his walkie-talkie from Doyel Chattar at the DU campus during the demonstration. Besides, sub-inspectors Bhajan Kumar Bishwas and Robiul Islam filed two cases against a huge number of unknown people for obstructing policemen to perform their duties during the demonstration, the OC said.
